Anon Mey 34VII/3 — lýð ‘people’

Anteócía meyjan mjúkust
Margaréta tók að bjarga
sætum lýð, er sauða gætti
sinnar fóstru, ljúfust kvinna.
Ólíbríus vænan vilja
vildi fá af brúði mildri;
frúin kærasta fimtán ára
fyrirlátandi honum að játa.

Anteócía tók Margaréta, mjúkust meyjan, að bjarga sætum lýð, ljúfust kvinna, er gætti sauða sinnar fóstru. Ólíbríus vildi fá vænan vilja af mildri brúði; kærasta frúin, fimtán ára, fyrirlátandi að játa honum.

In Antioch Margaret, most gentle maiden, began to save the sweet people, most beloved woman, who guarded the sheep of her foster-mother. Olybrius wanted to get the love [lit. the beautiful will] of the gracious woman; the dearest lady, fifteen years old, refused to yield to him.
